June 27-29 Franciscan Sisters Reconciliation Retreat at Holy Family Convent in WI: Repent, Renew, Rejoice.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is often approached with hesitancy by religious, clergy and laity alike. During the retreat we will have the chance to explore the spirituality of the Sacrament, through the writings of authors such as Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis among others. The Sacrament provides an opportunity to discover more about ourselves, acknowledging both our need and capacity for conversion and God’s invitation to recognize the depth of God’s love and mercy.

September 23-25 Your Franciscan Calling Online Retreat: Discern, Discover, Explore Your Call.
Does this describe you? Do you have a heart for the poor? Are you willing to love the less loveable? Do you desire a common life with like-minded women? Do you sense the Lord wanting to be closer to you? Is a simple life lived for the Lord attractive to you? Franciscan Sisters Sister Anne Marie Lom and Sister Cecilia Joy Kugel lead on an on-line retreat responding to these values of St. Francis. There is a group session in the evening on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 6:30 PM Central Time. In addition Sister Anne Marie offers individual spiritual direction at a convenient time for each participant on Saturday and Sunday. No cost, but registration is required.
